Konami has announced that Death Note manga artist Takeshi Obata has designed the characters in Castlevania Judgment, a 3D fighting spinoff from the Castlevania (Akumajō Dracula) supernatural game series for the Nintendo Wii game console. Longtime producer Koji Igarashi is overseeing this Fall 2008 game in which Belmont clan, a mainstay of the franchise, fights against the characters that have appeared in the Castlevania games over the past 22 years. Tokyopop announced in March that it would be releasing Kou Sasakura's separate Castlevania: Curse of Darkness manga, which is based on the Sony PlayStation 2 game of the same name. Viz Media finished releasing Obata's Death Note manga and is still releasing his Hikaru no Go and Blue Dragon: Ral Ω Grad manga.
